Rising harvest moon above our Court House

The Crook County Court House in Prineville Oregon was finished in 1909. It was built with native basalt from a local quarry and cost over $74,000 dollars to build. It was one of the tallest buildings in Oregon at the time. Today it still stands and is still used as our Courthouse. This photograph shows the harvest moon rising up behind the clock tower (that still keeps time) It is a truly remarkable and beautiful building!
